Grounded in God’s Word.
There is nothing more practical for the Christian life than a solid understanding of God’s Word. At AFLBS, you’ll be prepared to handle attacks on your Christian faith. You’ll be equipped for future schooling and whatever career you choose. Whether you become a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, or a mechanic, establishing God’s Word as your foundation is the best preparation for your life as a Christian.
AFLBS is a two-year Bible college designed to help students know and understand God’s Word and apply it to their lives. As students study the Bible, they grow in their relationship with God, develop life-long friendships, and learn to serve God with their lives.
What We Teach
In our academic program, students spend nearly 400 hours of in-depth instruction in books of the Bible, 120 hours examining foundational Christian doctrines, and 200 hours in practical training for the Christian life and ministry.
We believe and teach the Bible as the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God, which is powerful to transform lives by the Gospel and practical for every area of life.
AFLBS is located on a beautiful 25-acre campus in Plymouth, Minnesota, just 11 miles west of downtown Minneapolis. Set on the eastern shore of Medicine Lake, the campus provides a peaceful setting for students to study the Bible and grow spiritually.
Students enjoy the bike path along Medicine Lake, countless games of sand volleyball and ultimate frisbee, many beautiful parks within walking distance, and several restaurants and Caribou Coffee locations found within a five minute drive of campus.
The campus, which is also home to the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations headquarters, includes a chapel building, a student center, two dormitories, and seminary student housing.
